A stop motion animation about a girl who is shaving her legs (like she ought to according to our patriarchal society) when she encounters a curious phenomena. The video shows an alternative to the dominant male narrative by presenting an invented world as truth. A world inspired by the lunar age, worshipping of the feminine and the great mother, where a wholeness of being between the one and the cosmos can be found. Can a fictional matriachal fantasy world change our views and possible future towards our very real patriachal one?
